Travelport (NYSE:TVPT), a leading Travel Commerce Platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $8 trillion global travel and tourism industry has today announced a long term, full content agreement with Equatorial Congo Airlines (ECAir), the flag carrier of the Republic of the Congo.
The agreement also includes the implementation of Travelport’s Electronic Transitional Automated Ticketing (ETAT) functionality, enabling airline approved travel agencies to issue and amend e-tickets in countries where the bank settlement plan (BSP) is not available. The ETAT solution streamlines the booking process for travel agents and also gives the airline a cost effective, competitive advantage in the region.
Nicolas Négoce, Head of Communication & Public Affairs commented: “The agreement with Travelport will allow us to continue promoting ECAir’s content to travel agents worldwide in an effective and innovative way. We have a long standing relationship with Travelport and look forward to continuing our mutually successful co-operation with Travelport.”
Will Owen Hughes, Senior Director, Air Commerce, Middle East & Africa, Travelport added: “We are pleased to have extended our relationship with ECAir, and that they recognise the strategic value of Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform. We will continue to work closely with ECAir in the effective delivery of their content to Travelport’s global network of travel agencies.”
